Welcome to the Spring Fling Series! We are thrilled to be kicking off the week with two sisters, just like us, from one of our favorite blogs- Lolly Jane! We absolutely LOVE their style and creativity! I've been a guest over there, and I've even had the chance to meet these two in person- and they are so fun and so nice! So- without further ado, let's get this thing started!
Hi there Occasionally Crafty readers, we are so excited to be visiting these cute blog sisters today and thrilled to be part of their new Spring Fling series! Today we're going to share our pom pom spring banner:
To quickly introduce ourselves, we're twin sisters Kelli and Kristi from Lolly Jane, our DIY/home improvement blog where we share tips for painting and redoing furniture, holiday crafts, creating home decor on a budget and once in a while, we'll even share some tasty desserts along the way.
And every so often you will see our older sis Sandee (we've nicknamed her our manager since she coordinates our quarterly craft nights) on LJ, like today! We love her style and are happy she let us raid her house to share her pom pom burlap bunting that we will soon be knocking off (; It's easy peasy to create and is oh-so-springy and fun!
To get started you'll need a few yards of burlap, scrap fabric (hers is from Hobby Lobby) pom poms and hot glue. If you're like us, you probably already have these supplies in your craft stash (;
Simply cut the burlap into a pendant shape and fold; cut the fabric slightly smaller (feel free to use our template provided above, although we free handed ours. Perfectly imperfect! LOL) String some bakers twine between the fold of the bunting then hot glue the pom pom strand across the whole bunting. Simple but makes the space so cheery!
Sandee's mantel is super cute paired with our Shanty-inspired apothecary jars, framed eighteen25 printable, our foam Easter egg sign and Kelli's recent bunny thrift store find. Sandee and I both tried to bribe her to snag that bunny but she's playing for keeps!
Tag along with us on Instagram to see our other thrifty finds and if you’re looking for cute and inexpensive holiday and seasonal creations to spruce up your space, feel free to pop by Lolly Jane anytime! You can also find us on FB and Pinterest- we would love to see you (:
A big thanks to Val & Laura for letting us guest today! Happy spring, everyone! xo
